I have finally realized the real
reason why the ID-as-science section of Judge Jones' Kitzmiller v. Dover
opinion largely or completely ignores the defense arguments (over 90 percent of this section was written by the ACLU) : Jones knew that an appeal was unlikely because of the changeover in school board membership in the election. Had there been a good possibility of an appeal, Jones probably would have answered the defense arguments because presumably he would not have wanted his opinion to go to the appeals court without answers to those arguments.
Also, Jones said that the outcome of the election would not affect his decision. What a joke.
The Dover opinion is not worth the legal stationery that it's printed on.
